Love the heavenly smell! Oatmeal makes this a nice tender meatloaf.

I was completely impressed with this recipe. As a general rule I don’t like meatloaf at all. My objections to any recipes I have tried in the past are these…touch, greasy and tasteless. So when I stumbled across this recipe that was not remotely greasy, very tender and wonderfully flavourful I know that it will become a family staple. I chose to use milk (one of the liquid options) but think I may try the broth the next time due to the fact that the colour of the loaf was a little pale. Again that may be due to the way I cooked it. Thank you for your recipe. I hope others will try it.

  2. Spray a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  3. In a large bowl, beat eggs slightly with a fork.
  4. Add water and oatmeal and let stand until liquid is absorbed (about 5 minutes) Stir in remaining ingredients, except meat; mix well.
  5. Add meat, using your hands or a sturdy spoon and mix until well blended.
  6. Shape into a loaf in your baking pan.
  7. Make an indentation (trough) down center of loaf and fill with ketchup.
